International Delegations

International Delegations

European Utility Week brings together energy professionals to learn, network, collaborate and share expertise and information on a global level, which is why we set up programmes for international delegations that wish to learn more about the European utility industry and beyond. We facilitate connections on every level of the utility industry between international delegations and their European counterparts.

In 2017, this included an European Utility Delegation to California, USA (June / July 2017) and hosting 12 International Delegations to attend European Utility Week 2017 in Amsterdam from outside of the European Continent: Smart Electric Power Alliance (USA), HHBexpo (Turkey), PPI Pazifik Power (Phillipines), TNB (Malaysia), Compagnie Ivoirienne d'Electricité (Côte d'Ivoire), KVA SAL (Lebanon), Singapore Power (Singapore), K-Electric (Pakistan) and multiple utilities from India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates.

International Utility Delegations

We encourage utilities to bring their peers to the EUW Summit to join the strategic discussions that will shape the energy transition. Therefore, we have special utility rates for the Summit available.

The Smart Utility Plan (SUP) offers utilities the opportunity to bring 12 peers to the event at a discounted utility rate. Peers can engage in discussions in the Summit, during the Hub Sessions, participate in organised networking sessions, receptions and meet-ups.

Like +50 other global utilities, bring 3 or more of your colleagues from different departments to the EUW Summit and benefit from fixed rates!
